TMB Chairman hails Madeira trip "a huge success"

Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle has described the TMB's recent fact-finding visit to Madeira as its most productive yet.

Tripe is plentiful in Madeira
In a report due to be sent to board members shortly, Sir Norman describes the island as a 'tripe-lover's paradise', pointing to the ready availability of the product in butchers' shops there.

Speaking earlier today, Sir Norman said: "I know a lot of people complain that it isn't always easy to find tripe in the UK - particularly if you don't have a branch of Morrisons in your neighbourhood.  I'm pleased to say that for British ex-pats or holidaymakers in Madeira, there's a ready supply of tripe always close at hand."

Sir Norman went on to say that the ready availability of flights to the island by low-cost operators such as Easyjet made the prospect of  people being able to travel there to stock up on tripe "eminently feasible".

"It's a six hour round trip from the south of England, which makes it a more reasonable proposition than - say - a trip up the motorway to Lancashire, particularly with traffic being what it is these days," he said.

Sir Norman said he would be opening up discussions with the Madeiran tourist authorities so that the island could become a 'destination of choice' for those seeking tripe and tripe-based dishes.
